Dog vs. Cop Car: ON WHOM DO YOU WAGER?!?

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Fri, Mar 26, 2010 at 9:56 AM

Chattanooga cops are befuddled (perhaps rightly so) when a dog named Winston attacks and partially deconstructs a patrol car.

From the hilariously named local paper The Chattanoogan:

In the incident, an officer was running radar on Workman Road when Winston charged out through the gate and began shaking the patrol car. Winston munched on the tires and ate the front bumper.

He also attacked other patrol cars that were called in as backup.

Officers tried to pepper spray Winston, then to tase him, but nothing calmed him down.

Michael Emerling said the family is grateful that the officers did not shoot Winston. He said, "In other areas near here, police have shot dogs for much less."

Good thing Winston wasn't carrying a razor knife/box cutter/hobby knife, huh?
